Lords of the Fallen: a next-gen RPG inspired by Dark Souls, Borderlands

Helmed by Sniper: Ghost Warrior studio

Lords of the Fallen is a next-gen RPG that takes cues from Dark Souls and Borderlands, according to its executive producer.


The title will release for PC, PS4 and the next Xbox next year, and according to executive producer Tomasz Gop it won't shy away from difficulty.

"It's a challenging game, action RPG, which means a lot of advanced combat," said former The Witcher 2 producer Gop during an interview with Eurogamer at the Digital Dragons game festival. "When you walk through a location, and you have to fight 10 enemies, that takes around an hour."

Gop mentions Dark Souls as an influence in terms of trial and error difficulty, adding that the game's skill trees have been influenced by the Borderlands series.

German studio Deck 13 is handling development, though the project is helmed by Sniper: Ghost Warrior creators CI Games.
